Get the most from your XtendFlex soybeans

Combining the high yield potential of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology with a built-in tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate and glufosinate, XtendFlex soybeans give you another mode of action in your arsenal to help fight tough-to-control weeds like waterhemp and Canada fleabane, including herbicide resistant biotypes.

Using dicamba in your first herbicide pass provides beneficial early residual control that protects your crop’s yield potential. Early control of weeds, such as lamb’s quarters, redroot pigweed and common ragweed, allows you to get ahead and stay ahead. With XtendFlex soybeans having glufosinate tolerance, you also have the added flexibility for another non-selective post-emergent application option1.

Yield Impact of Early Season Weed Control

A pre-plant application of dicamba and glyphosate provides broad spectrum weed control and short-term residual activity on small-seeded broadleaf weeds to maximize yield potential of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans.

Trials showed a 2.4 bu./ac.2 increase due to reduced early weed competition from residual dicamba activity.

Waterhemp Control

Across Eastern Canada, waterhemp is becoming more of a problem. It’s difficult to control and has shown to develop resistance very quickly. In research trials, XtendFlex soybeans were tested in several trial plots with different combinations of crop protection products. See how XtendFlex soybeans stood up to waterhemp.
